I'm bored with everything in my music library. I deleted a lot of songs but the problem is I don't know much about music. I tried listening to The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, and Bloc Party. Okay, I know, they've been around for quite some time, sorry. I kinda like The Strokes & Arctic Monkeys. I only like 3 songs from Bloc Party.

After those 3 bands, I have no idea what to listen to next.

Try this one on for size:
5I4JGcY8U28
Fairly accessible; one of my favourite songs.  I am an electronica lover so most if not all of the suggestions I make will be of that genre.
If you liked that, try this one too:
chpjz0h-DMQ

EDIT: I don't know why the second video is so long, because the song ends about halfway through it.

if you wanna go with Brit Punk music at least go with decent Brit Punk. I suggest you try these albums, they are British and related to Punk:

The Smiths - Meat Is Murder
The Clash - London Calling
Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures

If you want to go for some different direction, just try around some really.

How about

nvm ill put up vids

just throwing random recommendations really, you could also tell us what kind of music you enjoy listening to that isn't top40 crap, because evidently a lot of people enjoy listening to top40 crap so it doesn't really tell much about your preferences ~~

be a man, listen to zappa

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQiSlG_ziVA

zappa's son is coming to eugene but tickets are $55+ and I simply can't afford it.  verysad.gif

as far as albums go i would start with hot rats, apostrophe, and uncle meat and then expand from there

I normally listen to rock, but I'm gaining a taste for DnB and techno and other instrumental stuff.

Try these songs:

Blood Sugar by Pendulum http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_5zvV0btCo...t=1&index=4

Burnt Eye/Black Thumb by Metronomy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rvg2vMfE7f0

I'll probably start listening to classical soon.

I kinda like your suggestion Kara. I already have a few tracks like those but they're the type that I can't listen to forever.

Chammer, what part of I don't know much about music did you not understand? I didn't like the Meat is Murder. sad.gif


Thanks guys for the suggestions. It's only been two weeks since school started again and I'm already sweating blood. sad.gif
